YouTuber Grant Thompson built his own metal melter from a microwave, and in this video he walks us through the steps to make one ourselves, and we just might give it a try!

We’re going to go ahead and warn you now, and probably again at the end: THIS IS DANGEROUS!!! You should only attempt this if you know what you’re doing, and even then, take every available precaution to safely interact with electrical current, because as Grant points out, there is more than enough juice in this component to kill you.

Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, go ahead and watch the video and see if this looks like something you can do. If so, CAREFULLY go ahead and build it, and let us know what all you’re able to do with your completed metal melter
